Scamp Pop Rivet Lengths?

I got all the rivets out that held up the dinette / back area partition so I could remove the nasty Cat Fur. It looked like 3/16" dia. rivets were the ticket...but it looks like 1/2" barrel length is just a wee bit short. Does anyone know the "official" length? I'm going to get some .61 and .75 long ones... unless I hear otherwise.

I just replaced every rivet in a 13' Scamp.
3/16x1/4, 3/16x1 1/2 and 1/8x1 1/2.

John - what year is your Scamp? We started the rivet process last week on our 1996 (until I ran out of Acorn nuts) and discovered that several of the side rivets holding the cabinets on were 1" and longer.

It's an 82.
You're correct on the size.
I just changed my post. I meant to say 3/16 x1 1/2.

Sorry about that.

I just changed the ones on my 2003, this one has felt fur, which I think is thicker than isolation on yours. I ordered the "6-14 Rivet, Acorn Nut, Snap Cap & Plastic Washer" set from scamp, these rivets are 3/16" X1 1/8" inch. Most of them were to long but it is easy to shorten them by removing the metal rod and cutting them off in a vice. I needed different sizes for different locations, custom fitting was the best and most precise option.
